Well, aren't I the spoiled one? I am having 4 baby showers! Of course ya'll will receive some lovely invites, but here are the dates in case you are one that plans way in advance!

November 10th - Southern CA shower
January 5th - Phoenix shower
December (first weekend) - Washington
February - Utah

Most of you live in one of those cities/states. If you don't or can't attend one, let me know your preference.

Feeling better today! Had my first water aerobics class. Loved it! It was SO nice to get out do something physical!!

Pregnancy Gods

The pregnancy Gods tricked me. I was so close to being out of my first trimester without major illness. Sure I didn't feel great most nights and the shots aren't fun, but to only have 1 Exorcist moment seemed like Heaven.

It was a trick. A mean trick. My second day on the job and one would have thought I have the Ebola virus. After 2 changes of clothes & installing a barf bucket in the car, I am wondering if Thomas can carry the next child...

Ugh. I'm starving and the thought of food makes me ill.

Is it too early to celebrate Mother's Day? This woman deserves a party!

All is Well

As many of you already know, our baby is healthy & strong. Our u/s showed the baby has a very strong heartbeat and is growing right on schedule. I'm actually a couple days further than the baby ticker.

During the physical exam the doctor discovered that my pelvic bones are very close set. Unless something really changes in the next months, our baby will have to be delivered via c-section. It wasn't the birth I had anticipated, but I am coming round to the idea.

We have another appointment in a little less than 4 weeks & we will find out the sex in November. What a great birthday gift for me!

I was finally given the "ok" to excercise! I will start my water aerobics next week and will be walking the dogs for about an hour a day (mainly to discourage their escapist tendencies!)

Had a great time catching up with friends in Arizona & hosting Karen's shower. Once I have time to load my pics on my computer, I will add them to the blog.

Oh.. and I had my first (and hopefully last) Exorcist moment yesterday morning. Aparently brushing my teeth on an empty stomach is bad, bad,bad.

Counting the hours

Happy birthday to the big papa!

We can hardly wait for our first appointment! I am SO excited to the heartbeat(s)!!! I'm trying to be calm; it's possible it's still too early to hear it.


And I seriously am getting huge.. As Bobbi has suggested, I will start posting pics.. Probably just monthly ones :-)

Showing Already??

I'm moving right along in my 8th week of pregger-hood. All is pretty much well. No Exorcist moments and from what I have read, if I haven't had them.. I won't! Hooray! Just every once in awhile I feel sea-sick.. But totally hungry all the time! Imagine that :-) So I haven't lost weight in my first trimester as lots of others do to sickness. I'm keeping it in line. I've gained about 4#'s.. which is pretty much on target with current recommendations..

But here's the thing. I've been this +4 maybe for the past week and a half.. and yesterday my body looks totally different! I'm already showing!!! Maybe if you saw me you wouldn't think so, but in a bikini.. totally..

It's SUPER early to be showing. I read most women don't show till 'round week 14.. Is it twins???

Twins will delight me, triplets will frighten me!! Twins runs in both of our families & the Clomid gives you a 10% increased chance of twins..

I'll let you know if in 2 weeks we hear heartbeat(s) :-)
